Jessica is a petite, lovely girl born in 2014 who lives with only her mother and 1 brother called Prince. Prince has been enrolled with Hope Shines since 2016. The family lives close to the Hope Shines center in a village called Ingenzi.
Jessica’s mother is constantly unemployed due to her lack of education beyond primary school. Fortunately, because of the Hope Shines platform, her mother was able to join the parents committee and contribute to the better cause of the children and the other parents. Her means of income result from her inclusion in the savings and loan program created within the committee. From this program, she saves money and is able to borrow when she needs it.
Jessica is currently in first grade of primary school, where she likes to study the native Rwanda language, Kinyarwanda. In her free time, Jessica likes to play and socialize with the other children. She says that when she grows up she wants to become a nurse and help others be well!
